The Iconic San Francisco Victorian From “Full House” Is on the Market (And You Won’t Recognize It)
Cut. It. Out.
Anyone who was a fan of the wholesome family sitcom Full House back in the ‘90s likely dreamt of inserting themselves into one of the Tanner clan’s famous group hugs. Anyone who’s a fan of stunning architecture, however, probably would’ve opted for the family’s stately Victorian instead.
The iconic San Francisco pad played the fictional home of Danny Tanner and his extended family during the show’s nine-year run—and more than 20 years later, it still has ties to the beloved series. Back in 2016, Full House’s original creator and executive producer Jeff Franklin purchased the charming house with, according to Realtor.com, the intention of restoring it to all its Tanner family glory (red door and all). Some speculated that Franklin’s plans were to turn it into a nostalgic Full House-themed rental, while also using it to film scenes for the show’s 2016 reboot, Fuller House.

Apparently, neighbors who feared the quiet street would turn into a major tourist draw got wind of Franklin’s idea and put a stop to the plan. So, instead, the Full House creator switched gears and opted for a full-on house flip, transforming the somewhat dated home into a modern, light-filled escape. Now, if you’re a Full House super fan willing to part with $6 million for a chance to live like the Tanners, then you got it, dude.
The three-story revamped Victorian is currently listed with Compass for $5,999,999. And aside from its Hollywood ties, the home has plenty to entice even non-Full House aficionados. Built in 1883 by architect Charles Hinkel Lewis and restored by architect Richard Landry, the century-plus-old home boasts soaring ceilings, skylights, and a floor plan that allows light to flow effortlessly throughout. Modern French front doors now painted a dramatic black hue open onto to an elegant living space with bay windows and a marble-wrapped fireplace. The kitchen is even more of a show stopper, with lacquered jewel-toned cabinetry, Calacatta Oro marble countertops, open shelving, and built-in wine storage.
Three bedrooms, including a “sexy master suite with walk-in closet and gorgeous, stylish bath,” make up the home’s top floor. Just below the living spaces, an additional en suite bedroom and wet bar connect to a dreamy English garden and backyard entertaining space. It’s out here where buyers will find a little token of Full House nostalgia: a small secret garden featuring cement tiles decorated with the handprints and signatures of the cast, says Realtor.com. “A little splash of the iconic,” says co-listing agent Rachel Swann.
